    Strongback leveling

    New greenhorn to strip building with an initial question on my strongback.
    My garage floor in the past heaved with the frost and cracked....since been repairs however there are now humps on the cracks from the repair.
    I have leveled the strongback from side to side (16' strongback) to the best of my ability. However, I cannot get it perfectly level from end to end (bow to stern).
    Across the width I understand I can shim the molds to be plumb....my concern is the difference in height of the molds from one end to the other....
    2x6 strongback with 3/4" ply shimmed along the length to get as level as possible.

    Not quite sure why you are having a problem unless the strongback is already fastened to the floor. Use some shim shingles to level the base then glue it to the floor with some thickened epoxy. Just get your moulds set up before the frost comes back. Once the stations are square and plumb it doesn’t matter if it is level as your reference is the sheer.
